    well, i closed out of the virtual machine during its blue screen state and opened it again later. It seemed to be going pretty well at first, it had the windows 8 loading screen, then it said it was getting the devices ready, but then it went to a black screen and i started to become quite disappointed with windows 8. after leaving it that way for a few minutes it started me through the personalization process
    everything has worked flawlessly since

    That's great news. I'm happy to hear it's working great for you. Virtual machines can be slow sometimes.

    shawn,
    i tried install Vbox, andcurrently i running win7 32bit as host, and i have iso file with win8 64bit.
    but when i attach the system to vbox, got error that's the 64bit couldn't be load because my pc doesn't have 64bit processor???
    how to check that's my system got 64bit processor or not?

    Hello Ryo,

    If this is for your Phenom II AMD Dragon 3.5Ghz, then it shows it as being a 64-bit CPU. You might double check you BIOS settings to make sure that you have 64-bit and Virtualization (AMD-V) enabled.

    AMD Phenom

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Ryo,

    You can best check in BIOS for what Shawn suggested.

    According to the VirtualBox User Manual (Chapter 3. Configuring virtual machines) some CPU's are not well supported and crashes may occur. The I/O APIC feature in the VM settings is recommended to be enabled to increase performance.

    If you're lucky, it might work.
    If there are still some issues (not working) then I'm afraid only a 64bit OS for 64bit VM works optimal.

    Regards

    That's great news Ryo. I prefer using VMware myself.
